Sailor is saved

Sailor is saved

This story is about a Bulgarian man. He is in England. He buys a small boat. He wants to sail from England to America on it.

A yachtsman sees the man on the sea. The Bulgarian man is unwell. He is seasick. Help comes, but the man does not want help. The rescue team must move him on their boat.

The man had a bag of food with him. He had some biscuits, hot dogs and beans. He also had some clothing and a US visa. However, he had no life jacket and nothing for navigation.

Difficult words: yachtsman (person who sails a yacht which is a type of a boat), seasick (not well because of how the boat moves), rescue team (group of people which saves other people).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
